You are invited to Moveable Feast 2021!
We are stoked that our annual fundraiser Moveable Feast is back on May 13 at 7:30 pm, and we want you to know all the ways you can participate in the raddest, 80s-themed event of 2021! Why 1980s? Because it was in 1986, 35 years ago, when we first delivered nourishing meals to our neighbors with life-threatening illnesses. While we won’t be able to celebrate in person at Moveable Feast like we have in the past, our incredible restaurant partners and Open Arms chefs are working hard this year to provide an unforgettable feast for you to enjoy while watching a special virtual program.

Help us celebrate our 35th birthday!
It’s 2021 and our 35th birthday! Throughout 2021, we will be celebrating the amazing accomplishments of our community, and we hope you will join us! There will be a variety of ways to celebrate with us all year long (we hope to even host an in-person birthday party later this year), with each month featuring a different theme to celebrate 35 years of nourishing our neighbors. Read more here, and THANK YOU for giving us so much to be thankful for on our 35-year celebration!
